FIDM DEBUT 2020: Advanced Fashion Design Student Maryam Varshochi
Recent Advanced Study Fashion Design Student Maryam Varshochi was raised in an artistic family in Tehran, Iran. Her father owned the country’s first sewing machine company, Kachiran, and her mother studied embroidery and sewing in Japan, with a seven-year-old Maryam in tow. “That year changed my life forever,” she says. After finishing high school in Iran, she studied architecture in London, where she resided for nearly a decade. Always passionate about fashion, Maryam decided to enroll at FIDM to pursue her dreams of seeing her own collection on the runway.
Held each spring, the DEBUT Runway Show features designs by graduating students in the Fashion Design and Theatre Costume Design Advanced Study programs, as well as work from Interior Design, Digital Media, and Textile Design students.
